Sister-in-law story

Years ago I was visiting my mother just before my niece's birthday. My brother and sister-in-law (I'm not on speaking terms with either) didn't invite us over, so my mother took the liberty of announcing that we were coming over on my last night there. I wasn't thrilled and really wanted to just dump the gift with the kid and go. Fast.

I smiled inside. My SiL is classic p_a. Mom asked and answered her own question and didn't realize it.
